“Great place for little children”
Review of Cosley Zoo

Cosley Zoo
Ranked #3 of 27 things to do in Wheaton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2012

This place used to be free, but I'm not sure if it still is. It's a very small zoo, and a great place for parents to take small (pre-school or grade school age) children for a morning out. I always enjoyed seeing the animals too. They have animals like cows, horses and sheep (traditional farm animals) as well as owls, and verious other non-farm animals.

Cosley Zoo is fun for children under the age of 8. Small enough for the youngest of children to walk through. Nice during holiday season..

This is a nice small zoo where the animals are well taken care of. This is a very good zoo to take your children.

This is a great little zoo and far especially for ages 8 and under, but older kids and adults like it too. Also, they are expanding and adding new exihibits!

This little gem is kind of hidden on a small arterial road at the edge of Wheaton. Do not go there expecting to see a Brookfield zoo. It is a small, almost more of a farm. It is great for the little ones as there is not too much walking. There is also a small play area with a big red railroad caboose the kids can climb on. Very reasonable admission. One of the other reviewers said they had a problem with parking, I never did. I suppose if you go on a sunny Sunday afternoon in June it could get a little crowded. Admission is very cheap and the parking is free.
